[Samba] samba AD: using passwd on linux to change PW


a short question about changing passwords. Our linux login server is using winbind for authentication. Everything is working well, but changing the password for a user
does not work. We see the following error:

Changing password for USER
(current) NT password:
passwd: Authentication token manipulation error
passwd: password unchanged


pam_winbind(sshd:auth): getting password (0x00000388)
Jan  3 14:41:36 HOSTNAME sshd[4355]: pam_winbind(sshd:auth): pam_get_item returned a password Jan  3 14:41:36 HOSTNAME sshd[4355]: pam_winbind(sshd:auth): request wbcLogonUser failed: WBC_ERR_AUTH_ERROR, PAM error: PAM_USER_UNKNOWN (10), NTSTATUS: NT_STATUS_NO_SUCH_USER, Error message was: The specified account does not exist.

Login is working fine, also the groups are all correct.

Maybe something in the pam-config has to be changed ?

Where can I find some description to setup the system that every user can execute passwd ?

System Debian 9.3 using winbind against Samba AD.
